By Miriam Allen deFord. "An award-winning crime writer presents the surprising TRUTH behind the legend of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow -- a tale written in blood across our country's most violent era!" The award was an Edgar, for a book about a political murder in Restoration England (I think?); someone should really write a book about deFord, who was a Fortean and lived in a hotel until her death at age 86, but today we're here to talk about this late-'60s paperback, which may have been rushed into print to capitalize on the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde.

This Ace paperback is in okay shape for its age: some mild cover damage, as shown, but nothing fatal; the spine is uncracked and straight; page toning, and the edge tinting is a bit faded, but nothing out of line with its age. Do I wish it were the edition with the trompe l'oeil bullet holes in the cover? I do -- but this one's slightly easier to find, and this is a good price for it.
